The current team consists of three field-based HWC monitors and one HQ based coordinator. This dynamic, hardworking and well trained team have earned the trust and respect of the targeted communities and made significant headway in helping these households coexist with the wildlife that surrounds them.
Although AWCF’s conservation focus is on large carnivores, the program includes all wildlife species, in order to try and change mind-sets – and eventually behaviour – towards wildlife in general. Elephants, buffalo and crocodiles are the main problems besides the carnivores (mostly hyenas and lions). The 2016 Annual Report can be downloaded below.
